VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – During the entire month of December, Hampton Roads and Outer Banks Dunkin’ Donuts locations are donating part of their coffee sales to the Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters.

It’s part of Dunkin’ Donuts’ annual “Coffee That Cares” program.

“’Coffee That Cares’ is a great way to bring the community together and support state-of-the-art healthcare for the region’s children,” said John Motta, President of JP Dunkin, a Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee. “Great coffee is really good medicine.”

Ten cents from every large cup of hot coffee and 20 cents from every extra large cup sold at locations in Hampton Roads and the Outer Banks will go to CHKD.

“We are pleased that Dunkin’ Donuts has rallied together to help our children at CHKD.  We are grateful for their continued support and commitment to our young patients,” said CHKD Executive Director of Development Karen Gershman.

CHKD provides medical care to nearly 450,000 children throughout Southeastern Virginia and Northeast North Carolina.

Since the “Coffee That Cares” program started in 2010, more than $100,000 has been raised to support CHKD.
